breast milk is the perfect source of nutrition for newborns

The study said that the longer an infant is breast-fed the more likely he or she is to
become better educated adults
. Babies breast-fed for at least nine months grow up to be
adults than infants breast-fed for one month or less. Moreover, they are
more likely to move up in social class
, based on occupation. So, breast-fed babies move up the social ladder better than their bottle-fed peers.
